Further information

Our annual event to promote distinctive young British talent together with new work for a broader dance audience. We will present you with uplifting performances, bold choreography and authentic artistry. Our dancers work with passion and energy to inspire our audiences’ imaginations and arouse their senses far beyond the visual experience.

Classically British 2017 continues to cross boundaries and this year’s dance genres will embrace Classical Ballet, Flamenco, Contemporary and Street. Three of our featured artists are:

Nathan Geering – an internationally acclaimed Street performer who uses the emotional and physical settings in his pioneering work

Yinka Esi Graves – a former Portobello Dance student who uniquely explores the links between flamenco and other dance forms in her performance

Joey Barton – a very talented dancer from the Rambert School. We are excited to show his work as he starts out on promising and ascending career path


We are proud to be performing during Black History Month, and share their ambitions and values with our own event and heritage. We believe that inclusiveness advances humanity and our show reflects and celebrates the diversities in dance cultures. We feel dance can helps us all to understand this important life message, as well as to have perspective and hope in these challenging times.

On Friday afternoon of October 20 local schools and colleges are very welcome to an interactive event that includes: The dress rehearsal; a retrospective of Black dance pioneers and an open mic Q&A session. The students afternoon starts at 1.15pm and tickets £5 are available via your School / College contact.
